Based on a manuscript name by Küster and introduced in synonymy of Melania hollandri  [sic] Pfeiffer, 1828 (see also Brot 1874 and Clessin 1890). It was made available by Bourguignat (1884), who treated it as valid name (although he denoted the authority with "Bourguignat, 1877"; see Note 2). Junior homonym of Melania coronata  Von dem Busch in Philippi, 1845 (Bengal).
